About the Pattern

This 8-inch embroidery design is inspired by Hagrid's cozy hut, a small stone house on the edge of the Forbidden Forest. Although created with experienced embroiderers in mind, I think a confident beginner with a can-do attitude when it comes to pattern tracing and satin stitch could also handle it!

What's in the pattern?

In this 40-page PDF, you will find:

  • A detailed supply list, including links to my preferred small businesses that sell the best embroidery hoops and fabrics!
  • A complete list of all DMC thread colors used in this pattern, including color swatches
  • Pattern tips throughout
  • One black and white traceable pattern
  • One illustrated color guide
  • 8 pages of illustrated stitch tutorials with written explanations, so that you will learn all the stitches used in this pattern
  • Detailed instructions on how to begin and finish your hoop
  • 20 pages of step-by-step instructions with accompanying photos that teach you how to successfully stitch this hoop

Stitching these pumpkins was one of my favorite parts of creating this hoop!

Am I able to sell items I make from this pattern?

No, Unlike my crochet patterns, I kindly ask that you do not sell anything you make from this pattern. Do not alter this pattern in any manner and distribute as your own. I strongly (but politely!) request that you give credit to my shop for the pattern and post a link if you share your finished hoop online.

Help! I'm intimidated by embroidery!

First, take a deep breath! Each of my embroidery patterns includes a detailed stitch guide with illustrations and step-by-step instructions so that you're able to learn each stitch with confidence. (YouTube is also a great teacher if you're a bigger fan of video tutorials!) Remember, if anything ever starts to look a little wonky, you can always use a pair of small embroidery scissors to carefully cut the stitches out and try again! Unlike many other art forms, very little in embroidery is irreversible. Mistakes are always a part of learning, so please do not become discouraged if you find yourself practicing stitches several times before you're happy with the result. (Plus, the more you practice, the better embroiderer you will become!)

Where can I purchase this pattern?

You'll find this pattern available here in my Etsy shop, and it costs $15!
